By now just about everybody in the world has heard or read about the amazing story that is MMA fighter Nick Newell.

Newell was born with only one arm, but has managed to put together an incredibly impressive streak of wins in his MMA career, currently sitting with a perfect 9-0 record, with 8 wins coming by way of submission or knockout.

The Connecticut born fighter recently wrapped up his first major title when he won the XFC lightweight strap in early December, and just about everybody started to wonder if he would one day end up in the UFC.

As amazing as Newell’s story truly is, UFC President Dana White just isn’t sure he’ll ever have a home in the Octagon.

“Never, no,” White answered when asked if he would consider bringing Newell into the UFC fold.

Dana also said he would never attend a Strikeforce event
Dana also said women would never fight in the UFC

i think if newell continues to destroy everybody like he has been doing, the ufc will eventually get to the point where they cannot overlook him anymore. i see him fighting an organization like bellator.
